The Battle of Expectations

So often I am burdened by the ever looming guilt that I am not doing enough as a mom. I know I am not alone in feeling this way, because almost every mom I have chatted with has shared that she has carried the same burden. Read more...

A New Kind of Christmas Card

I once naively told a funeral director that Christmas must be his quietest time of the year (I figured that even if people were gravely ill they would try and hold on through the holidays). He looked at me like I had lost my mind and said, “It’s our busiest time of the year, suicides are at their highest during December.” I had no idea. Read more...

There Is Still Time

Saturday night I came home with sore cheeks from literally smiling all evening. It was an absolute thrill to be at The Lights of Christmas in Warm Beach. All evening our booth was hopping. Your smiling faces, your hats, your kids in Christmas dresses and your comments about the station totally made my night. Read more...

A Gift To Change A Child

By the time we had them in bed that night, I was weighed down with guilt from being impatient and annoyed throughout the day. Read more...

Have A Perfect Christmas When Life Isn't Perfect

We all do it, we dream of the perfect Christmas. We dream of families gathering around the table for a delicious meal with smiles on their faces and love in their hearts. We dream of loads of gifts under the tree and having each member of the family present to open their ideal gift. We think about how grateful all of our children everyone will be and how filled with joy. Read more...
